Life After Beth trailer + limited release

If you hadn’t heard, the dark comedy that BRMC scored Life After Beth has been in limited release in select cities, as well as on DirecTV. Director Jeff Baena spoke to Under The Radar and mentioned BRMC’s involvement in the film:

We’ve done plenty of features on Black Rebel Motorcycle Club over the years. Can you tell us how you snagged them compose the film’s score?

So Robert Been, who’s the singer and bassist, is a really close friend of mine. I’ve known him for 12 years or so. Back when I originally wrote this I’d talked to him about working together. At that point they hadn’t even licensed any of their songs for commercials or movies or anything, so it was all kind of new to them and all new to me. But he’s a good friend of mine, and we’d always talked about working together. When this [film] became real, of course I first went to him and Peter [Hayes] and asked if they’d be interested in doing something like this, and they were super excited by the idea. They’d never done a score before so it was a learning curve for them … but once we found our way, it was so rewarding and amazing.”
